Has Anyone Experienced A Wearing Off Effect Following Success With Medications?

Has Anyone Experienced A Wearing Off Effect Following Success With Medications?

I was diagnosed with 'non radiographic' AS (although it's questionable about the NR b/c my doctor saw inflammation on the MRI, brought it to the attention of the radiologist who then agreed) and started with taking Piroxicam at night. Initially and for the first time in my life I woke up in the morning without pain. I then was prescribed Cimzea (the medication for NR AS).

Has Remicade Helped Anyone?

Has Remicade Helped Anyone?

Hey Guys
I am currently on Cimzia right now. My options are very limited due to me still nursing my 10 month old little girl. My rheumy said that Remicade is another option that has been seen to be safe while nursing. Every time I do one of my Cimzia shots they seem to last less time and I am really only getting 50% relief. I was wondering how anyone has done while on Remicade? This would be my last try on a TNF inhibitor because if it doesn't give the relief needed then my Dr. would like to… read more

Is There Anyone That Take A Biologic But Still Have Lots Of Fatigue?

Is There Anyone That Take A Biologic But Still Have Lots Of Fatigue?

I am on my second biologic. I have tried Humira and 6 most later my body attacked the meds. I am now on Cosetyx. It's been about 8 weeks and I still feel so fatigued. I was thinking depression and is it still this disease?

A MySpondylitisTeam Member

Adacio made me depressed. Just started on Benepali (Etanercept) and really fatigued. Very dizzy too. The unknown is a scary place!
